In an announcement from James Herrington, chairman of Hallmark Health System’s board of trustees, Alan Macdonald was recently named president and chief executive officer. The appointment is effective immediately. A past board chair, Mr. Macdonald, 70, has most recently served as executive vice president for strategy and public affairs.
Herrington states: “This year promises to be one of further growth and investment in Hallmark Health, and Alan’s contributions to these efforts will be invaluable. Most prominently, Alan is an influential and highly respected leader in our ongoing affiliation efforts with Partners and with both health care and governmental peers. He is a strategic planner focused on strengthening our organization, and knows decisively what our organization needs to achieve on our own and as part of a larger organization for our future success. He brings positive energy and has been an uplifting force in the short time he has served in his interim role. We believe he is the right leader for our organization at this time.”
Alan MacDonald is a graduate of Dartmouth College with a law degree from Boston College Law School.
